[Passed January 20, 1871.]

To the Honorable the Senate and House of Representatives of the

United States in Congress assembled :

on

Your memorialist, the Legislature of the State of Nevada, Relative to

repealing would respectfully represent, that the leading industry of this laws imposState is mining for the precious metals; and to the production of img quicles such metals, and the successful working of the mines of silver silver. and gold, the capitalist must look for wealth and the laborer for employment. Your memorialist would further represent, that in the reduction of the ores found in this State, quicksilver is absolutely required for the purpose of amalgamation, and that there is an average loss of quicksilver in the working of said ores of one and a half pounds to the ton of ore reduced. It is further represented, that the price of quicksilver has advanced in this State from fifty-five cents per pound in the year A. D. eighteen hundred and sixty-two, to ninety cents, its present price, and that in consequence of the increased price of said metal vast quantities of low grade ores and tailings cannot now be worked; that the product of all the quicksilver mines in the United States is in the hands and under the control of a single corporation or association, and being so controlled, there is no competition either in the working of such mines or sale of their product. Your memorialist would further represent, that there is produced on the Pacific coast a quantity of quicksilver much larger than the consumption of the whole United States, and therefore the Government derives no benefit from the duty imposed upon the foreign product. Your memorialist therefore prays that all laws imposing any duty whatever on quicksilver imported from foreign countries be repealed.

Resolved, by the Senate, the Assembly concurring, That the Governor of the State of Nevada be, and is hereby, authorized to cause to be made a copy of this memorial, and forward the same to our Senators and Representative in Congress.
